Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: ParZu, The Zurich Dependency Parser for German
Submitter: Rico Sennrich
Description: Dear all,

I am pleased to announce that ParZu, the Zurich Dependency Parser
for German (formerly known as Pro3GresDe), has been released
under a free software license (GPL).

ParZu uses a hybrid architecture, combining a hand-written grammar
and statistical information. It offers high-quality, robust dependency
parsing for German (try it yourself: http://www.cl.uzh.ch/kitt/parzu/ ), but
has so far suffered from limited deployability due to licensing issues.
We have now stripped the parser of all proprietary dependencies.

ParZu repository: http://github.com/rsennrich/parzu

ParZu has been developed at the Institute of Computational Linguistics
of the University of Zurich and is described in:

Rico Sennrich, Gerold Schneider, Martin Volk and Martin Warin (2009):
A New Hybrid Dependency Parser for German. In: Proceedings of
GSCL Conference, Potsdam.

Best wishes,
